Senate votes



to limit board

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE The state Senate passed a joint resolu-
tion Thursday that would place an elected education commis-
sioner on the Florida Cabinet and take governance powers
away from the state's Board of Governors.
Meanwhile, the Board of Governors, the State University
System's highest governing body, held its own meeting
at Florida State University on Thursday morning, where
members denounced the Legislature's efforts and discussed
implications.
Student Carolyn Roberts, chairwoman of the
Government board, told members before the Senate
vote that the body would approve the
resolution, which would decrease the number of board mem-
bers from 17 to eight.
"Let it be clear that the Board of Governors will not con-
tinue as we sit today," Roberts said.
If the amendment is passed, the proposal will also de-
termine which body has the authority to set tuition, which
is the center of a current lawsuit between the board and the
Legislature.
The joint resolution passed with a 33-4 vote. To become
an amendment and restrict the powers of the board, it must
be passed by the House of Representatives and 60 percent of
voters in November.

eganosellis@alligator.org

University leaders came together
to honor a UF mathematics profes-
sor Thursday for winning an award
deemed the "Nobel Prize of math-
ematics."
John Thompson was noti-
fied Thursday morning by the
Norwegian Academy of Sciences
and Letters that he had received
the Abel Prize of Mathematics, an
award that recognizes outstanding
work in mathematics worldwide.
Thompson's work focuses on


group theory, a branch of algebra.
He shares the $1.2 million award
with College de France Professor
Jacques Tits.
UF President Bernie Machen,
Provost Janie Fouke and Joe Glover,
interim dean for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, praised
Thompson for his work and
achievements during a celebra-
tion at the Keene Faculty Center
Thursday afternoon.
In an interview following the
ceremony, Thompson modestly de-
scribed his award as a "nice thing."
Thompson also won the Fields
Medal, another high-ranking math-
ematics award in 1970. Its recipients
must be younger than 40.
Collaborating with Walter Feit


"There are still
many things to
think about. One
foot after the
other."

City trying to sober up


Editor's Note: This is the final story
in a three-part series on the drinking
culture of Gainesville.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Whether it requires more self-re-
straint, 12-step programs or a week in
therapy, various ways of rehabilitat-
ing people with alcohol hang-ups are
becoming better researched and more
well-known these days.
But unfortunately for Gainesville,
there are no detox days or self-help
books to deal with the drinking prob-
lems of an entire city.
With daily arrests and deadly car


crashes fresh in their minds, many local
officials and residents have singled out
drunken driving and underage drink-
ing.as major issues in need of the city's
full attention.
But those same people police
officers, city commissioners, hospital
personnel and UF students have also
found that with problems like these,
there are no quick fixes.
So they've come up with their own
solutions.
Some of the ideas are simple; many
of them are unorthodox. But all of them
have the potential to turn the tides on
one of Gainesville's most troublesome
vices.

Cuts leave sports instructors jobless


* GRADUATE STUDENTS MUST FIND
OTHER MEANS OF PAYING TUITION.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

All but four courses in UF's sport and
fitness program are being snuffed out next
fall, and many graduate students who
teach the classes will have to find otfier
means of paying tuition next semester.
UF's College of Health and Human
Performance was forced to cut most of
its recreation classes, excluding snorkel-
ing and scuba diving courses, because of
budget constraints.
Michele Dye, spokeswoman for the
college, said the cuts would allow the
department to fund courses needed for
students to graduate, whereas sport and
fitness courses are offered as electives.
Although Dye said no instructors have
been "let go," graduate students who
teach sports classes won't be able to re-
new their contracts, which currently cover
the students' tuition costs.
Although Thomas Henry, a gradu-


ate student who teaches weight training
and jogging courses, will graduate this
spring, he said other graduate students in
the program would be forced to find an-
other way to fund their education, which
would be difficult halfway through their
program.
Henry said it's unclear if UF's sport
and fitness program would ever return,
but the outlook is bleak.
"There's not a whole lot of informa-
tion out there," Henry said. "Nobody
really wants to be
UF responsible for
Administration saying something
they probably
shouldn't, especially if they're going to be
here at UF for a while."
Despite the lack of' information avail-
able, he said students might not realize
the magnitude of the loss until it's too
late.
"As soon as they realize it affects them,
I'm hoping there will be a significant out-
cry," Henry said.
Darren Stuart, a UF alumnus who
teaches Latin dance, said the few of his
students who were aware of the cuts were


upset by the news.
"No one really knows about it until
they go to their schedules and realize it's
not available anymore," Stuart said.
Stuart teaches two Latin dance classes
at his dance studio, Salsa Caliente.
"It's not hurting me financially," he
said. "It's more of the fact that I won't be
able to teach the class."
The availability of a Latin dance course
not only helps students stay in shape
while earning class credit, but it also gives
them an opportunity to learn about a dif-
ferent culture, Stuart said.
Henry added that sports are simply an
integral part of UF's culture.
"UF has a long tradition of sports and
staying active," Henry said. "Without
them, I feel that UF is sacrificing its iden-
tity."
Daniel Patterson, a political science se-
nior, said he took badminton this semes-
ter, his first and last course in the sport
and fitness program.
"I would love to take more sports
classes," Patterson said. "I didn't have
the opportunity to take bowling. I would
have loved that."

Free burrito ad cooks up trouble for Burrito Bros.


By DIANDRA LAMAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

It was a hot, spicy mess for Burrito Bros.
Taco Co. owner Randy Akerson realized
he'd be giving burritos away for free all
week.
Akerson, 57, was involved in a promotion
gone wrong, he said, when a marketing firm
ran an advertisement in Monday's Alligator
claiming that the restaurant, located at 1402
W. University Ave., would be giving away
burritos to anyone with a student ID.
When his wife brought home the news-
paper that night and showed him the ad, he
had only one response.
"I'm so screwed," he said.


The ad was placed by an employee at
Elite Marketing Group Inc. in New York.
Akerson said he was asked to be part of
a promotion about a month ago but never
agreed to a weeklong burrito giveaway.
What he did agree to was a credit card
promotion. Anyone who showed a student
ID and registered for a Citibank credit card
would get a free burrito.
Instead, the ad made no mention of
Citibank or any requirements to get a free
burrito except a student ID.
"Someone could come with a 1963 Yale
University ID card, and I'd have to give
them a free burrito according to the ad,"
he said.
Despite the financial ramifications


"I've had 32 years of honesty
in this business, and I am not
going to be involved in a con.
I'd hang myself before I didn't
honor that ad."
Randy Akerson
Burrito Bros. Taco Co. owner

of feeding hundreds of people for free,
Akerson decided to keep the promotion's
promise.
"I've had 32 years of honesty in this busi-
ness, and I am not going to be involved in
a con," he said. "I'd hang myself before I
didn't honor that ad."


As a result, hundreds of customers lined
up to take advantage of the promotion.
Akerson estimated the restaurant had at
least twice the volume of business Tuesday
and Wednesday than on a regular weekday.
Akerson said the marketing firm told
him it fired the employee responsible for
the mix-up.
The company will also pay for all the
burritos given away during the promo-
tional period, he said.
Elite Marketing Group Inc. could not be
reached for comment.
Akerson said he will just be glad when
the hectic week is over.
"On Friday, you'll see me weeping," he
said.


Green movement pushing for Saturday night blackout


Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff
Members of Gators for a Sustainable Campus give away free compact fluorescent light bulbs on the
Plaza of the Americas Thursday afternoon.


By ILEANA MORALES
and KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writers

Lights out.
That's what the World Wildlife
Fund is hoping for as part of Earth
Hour 2008, an international event
urging people to turn off their
lights from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on
Saturday.
Dan Forman, the organization's
spokesman, said Earth Hour was
done in Australia for the first time
in 2007, and at least 40 U.S. cities
have registered this year, includ-
ing Atlanta, Chicago and San
Francisco. People across the globe
are invited.
Neither the City of Gainesville
nor Gainesville Regional Utilities
is officially participating in
the event. However, most of
Gainesville's city buildings will be
dark on Saturday at 8 p.m. anyway
- they close on weekends, said
Bob Woods, a city spokesman.
"If Earth Hour were to occur
during a weekday, I'm sure we
would be involved with this,"
Woods said.
Members of UF student group
Gators for a Sustainable Campus
are encouraged individuals to par-


ticipate in the blackout Thursday,
handing out compact fluorescent
light bulbs.
Santiago Naranjo, a member
of the group, said he hopes the
event motivates Gainesville, even
though the group hasn't seen
overwhelming support for envi-
ronmental activism in the past.
"Not enough people care,"
Naranjo said.
Jessica Hasbun, a telecommu-
nications junior, said she doesn't
think the event will be effective.
"An hour
Environmental is really not
Issues going to
make that
much of a
difference," Hasbun said.
Despite the skepticism, Forman
of WWF contends that that's not
the point. He said he realizes the
effort would only make a small
dent in conservation, but it's more
of a symbolic move.
It's meant to raise awareness
of a "green" lifestyle one that
includes recycling, carpooling and
conserving energy.
"We don't want people to just
turn off their lights for an hour
and think they're done," Forman
said.

STATE

BOG OKs $18M for security


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE Florida's Board of
Governors approved an $18 million re-
quest to boost emergency-notification sys-
tems and police departments at the state's
11 public universities during a Thursday
meeting here.
The efforts of the board, the State
University System's highest governing
body, follow a charge from board chair-
woman Carolyn Roberts to improve
campus safety following the Virginia
Tech massacre in April, said Tico Perez,
chairman of the board's Emergency
Preparedness and Campus Safety
Committee.
Each university has at least one im-
provement planned for its emergency-
notification services, which accounts for
almost $14 million of the $18 million. The
rest is for campus law-enforcement.
The state House and Senate must each
approve the plans before they are imple-
mented.
UF plans to install Internet-based loud-
speakers in classrooms, labs, building ar-
eas and outdoor locations on campus a
system that would cost about $2 million.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said
UF would not know when the installa-
tions would begin until after the state
Legislature's session ends. But Orlando
said he hopes the loudspeakers will be in
place sometime this year.
UF's project is the second costliest on
the list after the University of Central
Florida's $2.65 million plan for emergency
text-messaging and instant-messaging
notices.


Perez said UF's classroom speakers are
needed because students may not receive
emergency text messages in labs that re-
quire them to turn their cell phones off.
He said even though it's a tough bud-
get year, the Legislature has been "pretty
good" about recognizing the importance
of safety on university campuses, and he
expects to receive the funds.
About $3 million of the board's cam-
pus-safety allocation will bring all the
police departments within the State
University System in line with the board's
ideal officer-per-student ratio of 1 to 600.
"It's a matter of stealing best
practices from one another."
Tico Perez
chairman of BOG's Emergency Prepared-
ness and Campus Safety Committee

The University Police Department has
90 officers for UF's more than 50,000 stu-
dents, which is a 1-549 ratio. Because UF's
ratio is already below the state standard,
UPD will not receive more officers.
Perez said securing the money for ad-
ditional safety services is not meant to pa-
rade Florida as the premier "safety" state
in the nation. The board wants each uni-
versity to obtain the technology it needs
to best communicate an emergency with
its students and faculty.
"It's a matter of stealing best practices
from one another," he said. "God knows
we want it all."
UF's $24-million plans to renovate
Southwest Recreation Center, the Flavet
Field band shell and other facilities were
also approved by the full board. The plans
now wait for approval by the state.

Editorial
The watery, bloodshot eyes. The sore throats. The inability
to stay awake in class. There seem to be some sure signs that
Gainesville is developing a very big problem lately. But it has
nothing to do with those impossibly cheap drink specials at
Gator City. The culprit? Evil, evil pollen. So if you're popping
that Benadryl and trying to make it to the weekend through
a bleary-eyed haze, we know the feeling. Go inside, take a
deep, air-conditioned breath, and get ready for this week's
edition of...


Darts & Laurels
A you-don't-always-get-what-you-pay-for DART goes
to UF's new hire state Sen. Mike Haridopolos, along with
the majority of the state Senate, for voting 33-4 for a con-
stitutional amendment that would do away with the Board
of Governors and essentially turn it into an advisory panel.
Though the amendment still has to make it on the November
ballot and win the approval of Florida voters, it sure is a
smack in the face to university leaders, who believe that
stripping the board of most of its power will leave schools
open to the whims of politically motivated decision makers.
So much for trying to get a superstar state senator in your
back pocket.
Continuing with the calculating and duplicitous nature
of politicians, we throw a wait-weren't-you-the-one-who-
was-supposed-to-be-ready-to-pick-up-that-phone-at-3
a.m. DART to Sen. Hillary Clinton for claiming her blatant
exaggeration about her 1996 trip to Bosnia was due to a lack
of sleep. When it was revealed that Clinton's tale of land-
ing among sniper fire and running with her head down to
get to the American base was completely fabricated, she
claimed she "misspoke" and is human like everyone else.
We don't think it proves she's human, but it does prove
that she's getting really good at at least one part of politics:
lying.
But Clinton's gaffe starts to look a little better when you
consider our current second-in-command's comments.
'The actually-your-job-title-means-you-really-should-
care-what-the-American-people-think-since-you-work-
for-them DART goes to someone who really earns his
first name, Vice President Dick Cheney. When told in an
interview with ABC News that recent polls show about
two-thirds of Americans say the war in Iraq is not worth it,
Cheney replied, "So?" We didn't think he could possibly
aggravate the situation even more, but along with insist-
ing the U.S. is not facing a recession, Cheney continues to
infuriate us with his complete disregard for reality.
A well-it's-about-freaking-time LAUREL goes to the
Florida Senate for voting to approve the use of a variety of
factors and not just student scores from the FCAT to
determine a high school's annual performance grade.
If approved by the House, the new grades would re-
flect a high school's graduation rate, the performance of
a school's students in advanced courses and readiness for
college determined by SAT and ACT scores. Since those
things matter much more than a single FCAT score when
it comes to determining what makes a good high school,
we're happy they've scored at least one vote for common
sense.
Finally, a we're-glad-your-part-of-The-Gator-Nation
LAUREL goes to UF graduate research professor John
Griggs Thompson, who won the 2008 Abel Prize for
Mathematics this week, the most prestigious award in
mathematics. Though we have no idea what the contrib'u-
tions to group theory mean, a congratulations is still in
order. Thompson will split the $1.2 million award which
is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize with his unfortunately
named colleague Jacques Tits of the College de France.

Science of love reveals some truths


ince it's officially spring and love is in the air, I've
started researching the "science" behind romance.
While this information is worth sharing, it cannot begin
to explain a concept more complex than the human eye and
more confusing than the movie "Vanilla Sky."
According to researcher Helen Fisher of Rutgers
University, there are three stages to falling in love, and each
involves a different set of chemicals.
* The first and possibly most important stage is lust, driven
by the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen. This is crucial
because without an initial attraction, no relationship would
ever progress past the "just friends" stage. To be honest, I'd
say this initial stage of love really relies on the most shallow
characteristics of humankind.
Many researchers have claimed that there is a correlation
between how attracted you are to a person and how much
they resemble your parent. To me, this seems slightly creepy
but probably true. My brother's ex-girlfriend was a spitting
image of my mother. But, it may be a good idea to take a page
from his life lesson book and note that just because you are
dating your mini-mom does not mean your bond will last
through endless family reunions.
The next and most exciting stage is attraction. This is the
love-struck stage when people can think of nothing else and
daydream about their new lover. Researchers say that people
who have recently fallen in love release large amounts of the
hormone serotonin, which may cause them to go temporar-
ily insane. "Lovesick" guys and gals start acting in a manner
similar to sufferers of depression or obsessive compulsive
disorder. That gives a whole new meaning to "psycho girl-
friend," does it not?
As you may already know, teenagers tend to experience
this attraction phase more strongly than adults. Surely some
of you were in high school relationships so extraordinary
you were certain they would end in marriage. Back then, you
thought to yourself, "I just cannot believe the love of my life


goes to my school and lives next to
my best friend Marcie. Others expe-
rience years of being single and un-
successful relationships. But, I met
the father of my unborn children in
homeroom." And then something
Carly Hallam minor happens and you have an
overdramatic breakup, luckily giv-
letters@alligator.org ing you the opportunity to realize
there are other fish in the sea.
The final stage that takes over, and usually lasts the
longest, is emotional attachment. This is also known as un-
conditional acceptance, a description I think may be good to
keep in mind. A hormone released during this phase of love
is oxytocin, the same hormone given off during childbirth
and orgasms that helps strengthen and cement feelings.
According to Fisher, the more sex you have, the deeper your
bond becomes. So this could come as unfortunate news to
some, but it just supports what most college students have
already figured out: booty calls are not a good idea.
There are also some scientifically proven techniques of
flirting. One New York psychologist showed that the simple
act of staring into each other's eyes might invoke feelings of
deep attraction. When participants shared intimate details of
their lives then held eye contact for four minutes, the effect
was so strong that two of the participants ended up getting
married.
I think the idea that love can be analyzed so extensively as
to turn it into a science is kind of disappointing almost as
disappointing as the ending of "Vanilla Sky." But if you want
to believe the research of love, here's your science assign-
ment for this weekend: Find a recently showered look-alike
of your parent. Have a staring contest until you go insane.
And let the hormones do the rest.

Letters to the Editor
Chinese improved conditions in Tibet
In Monday's guest column, the author
asserted that Tibet and China are separate.
nations. That's not true. There is not a single
country or government in the world that
disagrees that Tibet is part of China. From the
second half of the 13th century, Tibet has expe-
rienced the merging of religious and temporal
power in a peculiar type of theocracy.
Historical records show that the institution
of the Dalai Lama as an "incarnate" politico-
religious supreme was recognized and em-
powered by the Chinese government starting
in middle of the 17~' century.
When the current Dalai Lama was first
installed in Lhasa, it was with an armed escort
of Chinese troops and a Chinese minister,
in accordance with centuries-old tradition.


What upset the Tibetan lords and lamas in the
early after 1949 was that the Chinese were
Communists. They feared the Communists
would impose their egalitarian schemes upon
Tibet. In 1959, the Dalai Lama fled China to
set up the government-in-exile after he failed
in the uprising. During the uprising, the par-
ticipants were only Tibetan commandos and
agents trained by the CIA. The main populace
didn't join in the fighting.
The Chinese government abolished slav-
ery and the serfdom system in Tibet. They also
eliminated the many crushing taxes, started
work projects and reduced unemployment.
They constructed running water and electri-
cal systems. They also built up child services,
including day care, health care, housing and
education. None of these were available before

Reparation money needed elsewhere
While I agree with the state's apology for
slavery, I question Gov. Charlie Crist's deci-
sion to not rule out reparations for the de-
scendents of slaves. It would take years for the
Legislature to consider such a proposal, but
the principle is wrong.
Consider the 143-year delay While the
apology is useful it acknowledges our
nation's tainted history the money is not.

Anyone would gladly take a check from the
government as a windfall, but that wouldn't
accomplish its purpose. How can giving peo-
ple money eliminate racism or injustice?
If it can, I know plenty of Irish, Cuban,
Chinese, Mexican, Italian, German, Filipino
and Russian people would also have cause
to be upset over stigmas our society has given
them over the years, which may still haunt
them today.
So, Gov. Crist, apologize. Then you and
the Legislature can use whatever money you
may consider giving to the great-great-great-
great-grandchildren of slaves and spend it
on schools in low-income neighborhoods.
Speaking from experience, it's needed.

UF MARKETING

Study: UF TV spots diverse


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

While the Gators were busy dismantling
the Buckeyes and climbing to the top as
football national champions last year, UF's
television spot was also beating its peers in
terms of diversity.
In a study of the 43 university television
advertisements aired during the 2006-2007
bowl season, researchers at the University of
Alabama found that UF's TV spot conveyed
diversity better than other institutions' ads.
"UF was absolutely an exception and, if I
had to say, was one of the best in the country,
frankly, in showing diversity," said Michael
Harris, a University of Alabama assistant
professor who lectures on higher education
and co-authored the study.
Harris said the other ads tended to ex-
clude minorities, and if minorities were
included in the commercials, they were
usually shown as token members of a larger,
predominantly white group.
He said the other author of the study,
University of Alabama assistant professor
of higher education Brian Bourke, would
present the results today at the American
Educational Research Association's confer-
ence in New York.
,Harris said when he and Bourke saw
UF's ad, they were impressed by the diver-
sity of race, ethnicity, age and profession.
The ad features a series of professionals
switching between the phrase "Go Gators"
and expressions such as "Go write the great
American novel."
It showed that "the university was open
to creating greatness in all the different
ways," he said.
Dan Williams, UF's marketing director,
said that is the main purpose of UF's Gator
Nation branding campaign: to show that
The Gator Nation is everywhere and making
contributions to every part of society.
Williams said diversity is an important
factor in creating a TV spot, but it's not the


only one:
"We don't try to drill down into that
too far," he said. "We don't want to say to
somebody, 'We want X number of African-
Americans and X number of Latinos and
all that.'" Last year, UF's total enrollment
included about 8 percent black students and
about 11 percent Hispanic.
Perhaps what made UF's ad seem more
diverse than other universities' ads is a dif-
ferent approach, Williams said.
Most university commercials look the
same shots of the campus, groups of stu-
dents walking and talking and scenes that
appear staged, he said.
Williams said UF took a different ap-
proach by featuring individuals, and he
thought this type of commercial was more
powerful.
"We create Gators. No one else, in
fact, creates what we create."
Andy Fletcher
president and CEO of Fletcher Martin

"I'm beginning to see other universities
doing spots closer to ours and getting away
from the traditional university-type adver-
tising," he said. "It's flattering to have other
major universities start to duplicate some of
the stuff we're doing."
He said the idea came from UF's ad agen-
cy, Fletcher Martin, an Atlanta-based firm.
Andy Fletcher, president and CEO of
Fletcher Martin and a UF alumnus, said he
chose to take UF's ad in a new direction
because UF is fundamentally different from
every other university.
"We create Gators," Fletcher said. "No
one else, in fact, creates what we create."
He said the ad's diversity may look
forced, but it really isn't. There's a bond that
connects Gators of any age, race or profes-
sion, he said, and that connection overcomes
all the other differences.
"It identifies people for the rest of their
lives," he said.

UF ADMINISTRATION

CLAS dean search committee refrains from action


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Due to a lack of consensus
among committee members,
the dean search committee for
UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences submitted a recommen-
dation to the provost that doesn't
endorse any specific action.
Committee members worked
late into Thursday night draft-
ing the recommendation, which
lists pros and cons of stopping
the search and evaluates one of
the candidates, Paul D'Anieri,
University of Kansas CLAS as-
sociate dean of humanities.
The report included an analy-
sis of ceasing the search because
two of the original four finalists
withdrew this month.
The recommendation does
not mention the other remain-
ing finalist, Barbara Romzek,
University of Kansas CLAS asso-
ciate dean of social sciences.
UF Provost Janie Fouke
wrote in an e-mail that she was
satisfied with the committee's
report. Although the committee
members didn't offer a specific
course of action, Fouke said it's
appropriate because she asked


for their analysis.
S"The fact that they only evalu-
ated one candidate points to the
limited diversity of the pool of
folks who were interviewed,"
she wrote.
She wrote that she would de-
cide the next step after reading
the report further.
Pramod Khargonekar, search
committee chairman, said after
the meeting that the committee
felt it would be inappropriate
to comment on Romzek because
the faculty's perception of her
might have been tainted by the
announcement of UF's adminis-
trative restructuring, which came
three days before her campus
visit.
UF President Bernie Machen
announced March 14 that budget
operations formerly handled by
the Office of the Provost would
be transferred to Matt Fajack,
UF's chief financial officer.
Machen also announced that
Fouke would resign June 30.
D'Anieri visited UF before the
announcement was made.
The committee was divided
on whether to cancel the search.
In an informal vote, five com-
mittee members, including
Khargonekar, wanted to stop the

search.
"How much faith can I have
in the result because the process
has been so topsy-turvy as best?"
Khargonekar asked during the
meeting.


Khargonekar, who is also UF's
College of Engineering dean,
said he didn't want to bring a
new dean in without a "ground-
swell" of faculty support for that
candidate.


A poll conducted by the presi-
dent's advisory committee on the
dean's search found that of the
25 percent of CLAS faculty who
voted, 58 percent recommended

Roberts said she does not believe
Florida voters have changed their minds
since 2002, when more than 60 percent
voted to create the board.
"It's not healthy that opponents cannot
agree to disagree," she said. "If we lose an
effective statewide board, we lose the abil-
ity to shape the vision of the universities."
Roberts excused herself from the meet-
ing shortly after her opening remarks to


sit in the gallery of the Senate chambers
down the street. She turned her gavel over
to Sheila McDevitt, the board's vice chair-
woman.
McDevitt, who served on the Senate
staff from 1967 to 1979, said after the meet-
ing that she was surprised by how quickly
the resolution made its way through the
Senate.
"I find it very disheartening to see this
happening," she said. "I've never seen
anything quite like this."
Mark Rosenberg, the board's chancel-
lor, said after the meeting that the board
is focused on the its work ahead despite
.distraction brewing in the Legislature.
Rosenberg said the board would try to
educate leaders in the House about what's
at stake for higher-education governance
as well as enrollment patterns and, oh
yeah, dealing with a daunting statewide
budget situation.
"I promise you, our attention is on re-
ducing the cuts," he said.

Thompson will travel to the Norway's capital, Oslo, to for-
mally receive his prize May 20.
"It's a great pleasure to be able to go to Norway," he said,
adding that his wife, Diane, is Norwegian.
He said he would first use his prize money to pay for his
daughter and two grandsons, who live in London, to attend
the ceremony.
Even after winning the two most prestigious awards in
mathematics, Thompson, who is 75, said he wasn't ready to


"hang up his spurs."
"There are still many things to think about," he said. "One
foot after the other."
In an interview before the event, Krishna Alladi, chairman
of the Department- of Mathematics, described Thompson's
accomplishment as the highest academic achievement in UF

nition to UF's math department, Alladi said.
"This sort of recognition to one of its
members is a crowning achievement, which sort of catapults
the department in the eyes of the world," he said.
Machen said Thompson's success exacerbated UF's "na-
tional-championship exuberance," although his award was
greater than any sports game.

Murry leads UF into SEC Tourney


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

If there has been one consistent
thing about the Gators lineup this
season, it is Tiffany Murry.
Coach Rhonda Faehn has toyed
with the team's order in search of the
strongest group, to replace a strug-
gling gymnast or give an athlete some
much-needed rest to prepare No. 3 UF
(8-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) to
defend its 2007 SEC Championship
on Saturday.
Murry was the exception. The
senior who competes in the floor
exercise and vault events has been
pulled from just one floor event all
season, a move made to give her a
rest and younger athletes more expe-
rience.
Last year, it would have been hard
to imagine Murry as such a steady
competitor.
She was unable to compete most of
the 2007 season because she was still
recovering from three surgeries on
her shoulder, hip and knee that she
underwent the previous summer. She
was expected to return in time for the
postseason push but wasn't healthy
until the end of the season in March.
"The whole time it was, 'By
February you will be back in the
lineup and everything,' but my hip
took a lot longer to rehab than anyone
expected," Murry said.
When she did return, Murry
played a small role in the team's third-
place finish at nationals, as she only


performed in two meets toward the
end of the season.
In the two competitions, against
Boise State and North Carolina State,
she made her presence known. Murry
finished second in the uneven bars
and first in the floor exercise against
N.C. State, and she grabbed a second-
place result on the floor at Boise State.
Since then, Murry has had to stop
performing the bars event due to her
still-fragile shoulder.
"It's been four months, and
every day I look over at the
girls on the bars, and I'm
like, 'If I could just do a
routine again and show I can
do it.' It's been really hard
giving that up."
Tiffany Murry
UF senior gymnast

While she has excelled this season
competing solely on the floor and
vault, there are times she wishes she
could still try to tackle the challenge
bars presents.
"It's tough," she said. "It's been
four months, and every day I look
over at the girls on the bars, and I'm
like, 'If I could just do a routine again
and show I can do it.' It's been really
hard giving that up." -
Giving up any part of the sport is
difficult for Murry, who began gym-
nastics at the age of 3 when her mom,


Ivonne Nelson, enrolled her in tum-
bling class at the local YMCA to keep
her from flipping around the house.
Her mom tried to persuade her to
compete in another sport, but every
time Murry was forced to choose, she
went with her first love.
"I put her in every sport you can
think of to divert her from gymnas-
tics," Nelson said. "She would go to
the sport, but when there came a time

she would always choose gymnastics.
"Then when she was about 9 or 10,
I said, 'Heck with it, I'm not going to
fight you any more. If that's what you
want, that's what you do as long as
you keep your grades up.'"
Naturally, the girl who has pushed
herself most of her life to become a
great gymnast wasn't going to end her
career because of a few injuries.
The road back to the All-American
form she displayed during her sopho-
more season was a long one, and she
relied on a strong support system
throughout. It helped that she com-
peted with five other girls on the team
for years even before arriving at UF
- Murry, Courtney Gladys, Ashley
Reed, Melanie Sinclair, Amanda
Castillo and Ashley Kerr all trained at
Orlando Metro Gymnastics.
Murry said Kerr and Gladys often
helped her relax and take her mind off
of gymnastics when she was having a
tough day.

Gators look to reverse


trend against Tigers


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The Bulls had to go through the Pistons,
the Colts had to go through the Patriots and
the Red Sox had to go through the Yankees.
In every sport, teams spend years pay-
ing their dues before getting over the hump
against a perennial powerhouse.
When No. 8 LSU (29-4, 8-0 Southeastern
Conference) comes to town for a three-game
series against the No. 3 Gators (37-2, 9-1
SEC), it will be the Tigers playing the role of
daddy and UF playing the role of son or
in this case, mother and daughter.
"We haven't beaten them in three years,
but we are ready for LSU," said ace Stacey
Nelson, who holds an 0-5 career record
against the Tigers.
The last time the Gators defeated the
Bayou Bengals was in a 3-1 road victory
in 2004. It was so long ago that not a single
current Gators player or coach Tim Walton
was on the roster to experience the win.
Since that 2004 game, LSU has won 11
in a row against UF, including a perfect 4-0
record just last season the fourth contest
being a 1-0, extra-inning decision in the SEC
championship game.
The tournament title was the fifth for
LSU matching its five regular season SEC
titles. By contrast, the Gators have never
won an SEC tournament and earned their
lone regular-season SEC title in 1998.
"We have talented players," said Nelson
when asked if this year's team is the best


that the Gators have had going into a game
with the Tigers.. "I mean, we have girls sit-
ting the bench that are great players."
Needless to say, LSU hasn't become one
of the SEC's powerhouses without trotting
out a few thoroughbreds of its own.
Senior catcher Killian Roessner made
the NFCA first team after hitting .354 and
throwing out an SEC-high 19 runners a
season ago. The Tigers also boast a super-
star junior hurler of their
own. Dani Hofer earned
2007 All-SEC first-team
honors after going 24-3
with a 1.36 ERA as a
sophomore.
Despite the history
Between the two teams
Nelson) and a number of impres-
sive players on the LSU
roster, UF has already shown it is more than
capable of handling top-notch competition.
In six games against teams currently in
the Top 25, the Gators have posted a 4-2
record, with both of their loses coming by
a single run. UF comes into the showdown
with a 10-game winning streak, the second-
longest winning streak in the matchup
- LSU has won 17 straight.
When the Gators take the field on
Saturday, the team will be hungry to re-
verse their fortunes against the SEC team
with the best all-time winning percentage
against the Orange and Blue, 79.4 percent
in 34 games.
"Excited is an understatement," Nelson
said.

competes in the same events as Murry,
was able to relate with what her friend
was doing and gave her words of reas-
surance.
"I would always remind her how im-
portant she was to the team and how far
she has come, and that helped her keep
going to having such a phenomenal senior
year," Gladys said.
Having the support from her team-
mates wasn't the only thing pushing her.
In her two events, Murry has made a
huge impact that could propel the Gators
to the next level and bring home the na-
tional championship that has been just out
of the program's reach the last few years.
On the floor, she is the leader of the na-
tion's second-highest-scoring floor team
in every meet, minus the one competition
she had off.
Although her performances on the
floor have helped get the team off to the
right start, it's her seven top-three finishes
in 10 competitions on the vault that have
quieted her naysayers.
"There were a lot of people I heard say,
'You'll never be good on floor and vault
again after you had hip surgery,' and other
things, so it's been nice proving them
wrong," Murry said.
Even with the strong season she has
had, Murry knows it is far from over.
The Gators will head to Duluth, Ga.,
looking to repeat as SEC champs against


six other schools ranked in the top 20,
including the two teams UF lost to ear-
lier this season, No. 1 Georgia and No. 6
Alabama.
The chance to help the Gators win
back-to-back SEC titles and head to na-
tionals on April 24-26 has given.the senior
an extra bit of motivation in the gym.
"This is my last shot for myself, for my
team to win a championship," Murry said.
"Every day, every practice, I'm like, 'This
is my last practice,' and it has renewed
my passion and made it easier to push
through the rough
days."
The repeat attempt
S might be easier as
GyVMnaISCS the Bulldogs will be
missing two-time de-
fending all-around champion Courtney
Kupets, who is out for the season after
rupturing her Achilles' tendon on March
1 against Arkansas, but Faehn doesn't ex-
pect that to be an issue, since UGA lost two
of its top athletes right before its national
championship win last year.
Now that Murry will be able to contrib-
ute to the Gators' championship runs, her
mom is certain that her "shy, kind-heart-
ed" daughter will do anything to make up
for missing her chance to help last season.
"It is a big thing for her," Nelson said.
"She wants to win so badly, and I know
she will do everything it takes to pull
something out to help the team get there.
I hope they win, because if they don't, I
know she will be very disappointed."

New police plan and city ideas target Gainesville's alcohol issues


DRINKING, from page 1


GAINESIIILLE GUINEA PIG
Gainesville, a town with a high student population and lots to
celebrate, could be the perfect testing ground for new methods of
alcohol crime prevention.
In 2007, the Gainesville Police Department issued 1,009 cita-
tions for underage drinking. An anonymous survey distributed
by the university stated 16 percent of UF's student participants
had driven after drinking a ratio that, when expanded across
the entire campus, would mean about 8,000 students.
And according to Michele Ziglar, the program manager for
Shands at UF's trauma center, 38 percent of the center's crash and
accident victims in an average year have alcohol in their vehicle or
have been drinking themselves.
Given these numbers, most would agree Gainesville is in need
of different ways to approach the problem.
But the traditional solution of simply expanding law en-
forcement would be an unrealistic method of prevention, said
University Police spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb.
For example, Holcomb said an officer increase on a Gators foot-
ball game day, when about 100,000 people take to the stadium and
the streets with cups in hand, would be logistically impossible.
"How large of a force would you need on that day?" Holcomb
said. "What are you going to do with those officers every other
day?"

THE POLICE'S NEW PLAN
In August of 2007, about four months after a drunken driver
hit and killed GPD Lt. Corey Dahlem, the department began a
one-year program called the Comprehensive DUI and Underage
Drinking Plan.
Partnered with agencies from the state and the university, and
funded with hundreds of thousands of dollars from federal grants
and the city, the plan was designed from its start with a strict focus
on stopping underage alcohol sales and drunken driving in its
tracks.
Watching for this kind of activity is nothing new, said Capt. Ed
Book, a district commander with GPD who helped develop the
plan. Since before the plan was designed, local police have coordi-


nated drunken driving checkpoints, investigated keggers with the
department's Party Patrol and even hied a full-time DUI preven-
tion specialist to help keep the roads sober.
But the new plan, with its focus on education as well as enforce-
ment, represents a new approach that police and others have taken
to the war on drinking.
The plan called for police to arrange for small advertisements
on TV, the Internet and in high school yearbooks. They
planned to meet with bartenders, servers and dub 4T
staff to teach how to deal with problem custom- "THI)
ers trying to drink underage places like

Avenue have already undergone training. AND ^NE I
And they would coordinate volunteer- MIlU Ol L
staffed "SAFE-T Kiosks" downtown IN
and near campus that would steer NOT GOING J
drunk people to taxis or hospitals rather TAlIi G\
than jail cells.
Of course, the tried-and-true polic- 'HCC CO(
ing methods of increasing road sobriety f-)R AL(
checkpoints and neighborhood watches AND OTH
were also listed as components of the plan.
Even so, police and city officials have said PR'IE
it's not always easy to find the necessary manpow-
er to keep the city policed while keeping watch over the
downtown drinking scene.
City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who also serves as
UF's Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, said local units
have been stretched thin by the city's busy weekend nights.
"A lot of people in Gainesville don't realize that when it comes
to bar dosing time, police have to pull officers from neighborhood
patrol," Mastrodicasa said. "Physically, you can't do it without
that amount of people."

TARGETING THE TAPS
Though local police have concentrated their efforts on spread-
ing information and stopping crime, the root problems of drunken
driving and underage drinking delve much deeper.
The Gainesville City Commission has continuously acknowl-
edged these alcohol-related crimes as some of the most damaging
to the city and the university. But doing something about them has
proved a daunting task for even the city's top leaders.
Mastrodicasa said targeting the bars, restaurants and dubs that

serve alcohol irresponsibly is one method she hopes the city wi
pursue further.
Penalizing establishments that repeatedly serve alcohol t
customers younger than 21, she said, would have some lastin
benefits: It would force the dubs to monitor their sales closer, giv
police a starting point f6r where to patrol and reward dubs wh
follow the rules.
According to data compiled by the police on drinkir
citations in 2007, patrons of several popular dowi

TION City officials have also reached a stumblin
block in punishing the bars. The city doesn't hav
full control over the clubs in its expanse because alcoh<
permits are controlled by the state.
"From an administrative standpoint, it has been really challenj
ing to do stuff with them," Mastrodicasa said. "To take someone
liquor license away ... is much more complex and complicate
and bureaucratic than you would ever imagine."
She added, however, that there are other steps the city coul
take to reward law-abiding establishments and rebuke the rest.
She proposes that the city's dubs and bars only allow in peop)
who are 21 and older. However, exceptions could be made for bai
with clean track records so that everyone 18 and older could s
have a place to spend their free time.
It's an idea that Mastrodicasa says holds promise. Bars wit
shady histories and lots of underage drinking citations woul
have constraints placed on their attendance and, subsequently
their income. At the same time, watchful bars with spotless hi
stories and city permits would be given an advantage over tf
competition.
"We, as a city, are limited in what we can do," she said. "I really
want to make it an incentive to these bars to do a better job."
However, she said some citizens have pushed further.
Why, they asked, introduce the 18-to-21 permits at all
Mastrodicasa responds that legislation prohibiting the underaj
crowd from going out to dubs could push illegal drinking int
unregulated areas, like house parties, and send the wrong messa
to bars that have, in the past, policed themselves.
Changing the times that bars are allowed to stay open is ar
other idea. Before the City Commission ruled in 1999 that bai
should dose their doors at 2 a.m., customers were allotted
"cooling down" period during which they could stay in the bai
to sober up.
Mastrodicasa thinks the policy should be reinstated, but oth(
commissioners and residents have not been so supportive. The
cite the ease in which such a law could be broken and the long(
hours for police officers.
Other ideas have recently come to light as possibilities.
Mastrodicasa said. Expanding the number of bus stops and Lat
Gator routes. Making taxi services closer and more convenien
Postponing towing services so people who have been drinking
don't feel the pressure to drive.
All are the result of prevention brainstorming sessions froi
residents and commissioners, yet they remain wishful thinking
until the ideas find public backing or the financial funding to fo
low through.
And that sort of support is becoming harder to find. A $4 mi
lion budget cut for the city in 2007, coupled with the $3.1 million
the city stands to lose due to the passing of the state's property ta
Amendment 1, means money that could go to new (and poter
tially expensive) ideas is being rationed to save current program,

surveys annually in order to quantify risky behavior and to think
of better ways to combat it.
And with help from a $280,000 U.S. Department of Education
grant, the program has increased focus groups and advertising
across campus. Many UF students have seen ads campaigning
that "Less is More" and advising students not to be "That Girl" or
the "Sketchy Drunk Guy" on buses, in bars or in the Alligator.
As the grant's ad funding nears its end, Tavis Glassman, the
center's coordinator for alcohol and other drug prevention, says
the ads have developed their own niche in the competition for
students' attention.
"Traditional student marketing is stuff like, 'This is what your
liver will look like,'" Glassman said. "Old-school ads were just
disseminating facts." The ads circulated around UF, he said, have
instead focused on more salient issues for students: their relation-
ships, their finances or their behavior.
Though Glassman said he can't be sure yet whether the ads
are changing students' minds, he added that he understands the
ultimate limit of advertising.
"This is a complex problem," he said, "and one little ad is not
going to solve it."
He said he likes ideas like Mastrodicasa's 21-and-up bar limit,
as well as registering kegs with serial numbers and having alcohol
suppliers bear responsibility for any underage drinking nearby.
But the most important way to curb alcohol crime, he added,
is not a new idea at all: increasing the amount of DUI checkpoints
local police coordinate per year from about two to at least 10.
"The reality is," he said, "people don't think they're going to
get caught."

THE BEST OF THE REST
Others outside the city's most powerful institutions have
offered up their own ways to combat underage drinking and
drunken driving.
Ziglar at Shands' trauma center said she wants convicted
drunken drivers to tour her hospital, trauma center and morgue
as part of their legal punishment. AAA Auto Club South and
Budweiser sponsored a local designated-driving and towing
program for the St. Patrick's Day weekend that would get revelers
and their vehicles home safely.
And even some students have organized against drunken driv-

ing. Lindsay Keller, a UF junior in health science, helped organize
a self-funded group called Gator Ride that will give free rides
home to anyone who calls. The service will have a trial run on the
weekend of April 11.
"It'll take a while at first," Keller said, "but you know what? It's
better than somebody drunk driving home."


Scanners help


bars weed out.


fake ID cards

* BAR OWNERS FEAR HAVING THEIR
LIQUOR LICENSES REMOVED. .

By VALERIE GARMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

When checking thousands of IDs a night, ifs easy
for bartenders to let a fake slip through once in a
while.
So some local restaurants are using scanners to
help curb underage drinking and keep the fake IDs
out.
Restaurants and bars like The Swamp Restaurant
and Gator's Dockside are arming employees with a
computerized scanner to screen IDs, meticulously
checking for fake, invalid or expired cards.
Jeff Bartholomew, general manager of The
Swamp, said that the majority of IDs that come
through the restaurant are probably not being used
by their rightful owners.
"We want to avoid being one of the bars getting
in trouble with the cops," said Bartholomew, who
made the decision to start using the scanner about
a month ago.
If an ID doesn't scan, it is confiscated and turned
over to the Gainesville Police Department.
Getting caught serving alcohol to minors can
mean serious consequences for bar owners. .'
"You can get your liquor li-
Around cense taken away. That's why
Ga esvill it's not worth taking a chance,"
Bartholomew said. "It's not worth
me losing what I do for a living just so someone can
have one night of drinking." He said the Swamp
is trying to use the scanner as much as possible to
avoid problems. Bouncers also routinely patrol the
bar, and police officers frequently walk through.
GPD Lt. Wayne Ash said he applauds the bars
that have gone out of their way to try and avoid
underage drinking problems.-
"Anything that will reduce the number of fake
IDs will be helpful," Ash said.
Gator's Dockside manager Melanie Beebe said
she uses the hand-held ID scanner to prevent argu-
ments.
"Young people who want to drink will lie, argue
and scream," Beebe said. "They'll tell you every line
there is."
Gator's Dockside invested in a scanner about two
years ago but only as a second reference. They use
it at the door on Tuesday nights, which attracts the
biggest crowd of drinkers, but keep it behind the bar
on most nights.
"Training your staff for what to look for is a bet-
ter tool than the scanner," said Beebe, who said she
takes ID-checking very seriously.
For people who are caught drinking with fake
IDs or ones that aren't theirs, theirs IDs are con-L
cated. Drinks are pulled from the table, the patrons
must pay their tabs, and the server who supplied the
drinks is fired.
Beebe thinks the reason not many bars use scan-
ners is because of their price. Scanners can cost any-
where from $1,200 to $1,500.
"It works really well because people will turn
around and walk out when they see the scanner"
Beebe said. "It's not really a scare tactic. It's just our
way of saying 'come on, just don't pull this here.'"

22, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, MARCH 28,2008


MIKE, from page 23


Toledo credits fast

Start to good defense


BASEBALL, from page 23

said. "The whole season has been going pretty solid. It's
not just one guy, because everyone has been playing well
behind me. The defense has been playing great, and, of-
fensively, we've put up runs."
The Tampa native has relied heavily on the Gators' de-
fense. With only 12 strikeouts in his five starts, Toledo has
used a flurryof fly balls and ground balls to record outs.
"I knew coming in that there was go-
ing to be a lot less strikeouts," he said.
"The guys on this level are a lot better,
Raseball and the coaches keep telling me to keep
the ball down and let the defense do the
work."
Though he's been more than adequate, Toledo has
shown a propensity to fall behind in the count and has
more walks (14) than strikeouts. O'Sullivan said in the
preseason that the Gators would need their freshmen
to step up if the team were going to conipete. So to
O'Sullivan, it's no surprise that his team sits atop the.
SEC East while featuring two prolific freshmen.
"Most good teams have a freshman or two that kind
of figure things out quickly, and (Adams is) one of those
guys," O'Sullivan said. "Tommy is one of those guys,
too. He puts a tremendous amount of work in; he's a
hard-worker. He demands a lot of himself."


that put me in the bottom rung of students on the day.
Even he couldn't believe I was that slow. Or maybe it
was out of habit, as two guys before me tied for the top
times with 4.53s, beating me by a full second.
Mike Dent, a sophomore who starred opposite FSU's
Preston Parker as a wide receiver at Delray Beach Atlantic
High, and Gary Bryant, a 37-year-old senior who works as
an accountant, stand a great chance of making the list of 15
students who will advance to the semifinals.
The star of the first day of competition was Ryan
Stallings, junior finance major and The Great White Hope.
He came straight from a test and was one of the last to run,
but he impressed with a blazing 4.49. The feat was even
more daunting considering he was battling a hangover.
"I'm really dehydrated," the 21-year-old said. "I went
out last night, so I don't feel so good."


Poor second-half wraps up game, Bowden's career


WHOOPS, from page 23

by the half, when UF trailed 40-25,
the Gators' start to the second half
clinched their fate. They scored only 7
points in the first 10:54 after halftime.
Perhaps the toughest part no
one can put a finger on why this hap-
pened. Lone senior Depree Bowden
scored 10 points on 5-of-ll shooting in
her last game donning the Orange and
Blue. Bowden re-entered the game in
the second half, even after twisting
her ankle, despite the game's outcome
likely being sealed.
"I didn't expect it to end like this,"
Bowden said. "We just didn't start off
from the get-go like we wanted to
win. We had people playing like they
were scared or timid."


Junior guard Sha Brooks, .who
scored a team-high 16 points on 5-of-
19 shooting, didn't have much to add.
"I would say
we lost this game
ourselves," Brooks
said. "We just
did a lot of things
wrong. I don't
even know what
really happened."
Bowden Butler, howev-
er, had some idea-
that this might happen. Butler said
the team had less intense practices
the last two days: But her team had a
good shoot-around before playing the
Wolfpack and she had hoped her team
had snapped out of it.
"Clearly, I was wrong," she said.
UF mostly played zone defense
while the game's outcome was still


up for grabs, but N.C. State dissected
it time after time. Zones are designed
to force opponents to shoot from out-
side, but the Wolfpack got easy layups
and dose jump shots.
"It was very dear that we were
going to have a hard time guard-
ing. (Wolfpack forward Khadijah)
Whittington one-on-one," said Butler,
explaining the decision to stay.zone.
"It was tough for us to guard them
one-on-one, because offensively, they
were just so much more aggressive
then we were defensively."
With the off-season looming, UP is
left with a bittersweet end to a positive
season.
"Why is the big question," Butler
said. "I don't know, maybe it's a lack
of experience on my part not being
able to answer the question. I know
that it's disappointing."

No. 24 UF rides young talent into series at LSU

Look up and down UF's roster
and you'll see a list littered with
freshmen and sophomores.
The Gators' youth was one rea-
son why they were expected to be
a non-factor in the Southeastern
Conference.
Though the roster features
a number of guys who may be
breaking in their first set of Gillette
Mach3s at this very moment, they
haven't shied away from chal-
lenges.
Freshmen Josh Adams who
has played everywhere from cen-
ter field to second base without a
single stop at his natural position
of shortstop and pitcher Tommy
Toledo are at the head of the class.
The No. 24 Gators (18-5, 5-1
SEC) will need the pair to excel
if they hope to come away with a
victory in their three-game home
set against LSU (15-8, 2-4 SEC). The
teams open the series Friday night
at 6:30.
Adams leads the Gators in bat-
ting average. (.388), home runs (5),
RBIs (30) and slugging percentage
(.688).


According to coach Kevin
O'Sullivan, Adams' swift adjust-
ment to the college game cmies
from his ability to accept coaching
and constructive criticism. It's that
mentality that leaves O'Sullivan
unsurprised by Adams' prolific
start to his college career.
"The thing with him is that
he trusted the coaches early on,"
O'Sullivan said.
"He's had suc-
cess, he's a draft-
ed player and
here the coaches
gare changing his
swing around.
He trusted them
o'Sullivan and believed in
them and he did
it. He persevered through some
tough times in the fall, and good
things are coming his way now."
Toledo has enjoyed a charmed
start to his season as well, though
he didn't believe it was possible.
When asked what he would have
said if someone told him he'd be
4-0 with a 1.93 ERA after five starts,
Toledo said he would have called
you crazy.
"It's been a good five games," he

t took me about five minutes to real-
ize that I was in way over my head.
"Large or extra large?" asked
the guy in charge of handing out free
T-shirts.
You see, I'm more of a medium guy.
My little league all-star jersey still fits
me, and it was dear from the start that
medium guys like me were going to
have a tough time in Urban Meyer's
40-yard dash competition.
On top of that, I'm inexplicably
slow. I was that kid who looked like a
wide receiver but played left guard in
Pee Wee football. I have long legs and
am a decent athlete, but somehow that
doesn't translate into a respectable 40-
yard dash time.
Instead of aiming for a shot to race
UF football players during the Orange
and Blue Debut on April 12, I1 was just
hoping not to embarrass myself.
Baseball players try to avoid total
ridicule by hitting at an average above
the Mendoza Line. I set a goal of run-
ning a time below the Miller Line. -

I asked
speedsters like
Louis Murphy and Emmanuel Moody
for tips, and both pointed to the start as
where valuable time is won or lost.
Web sites said to hold your breath
for the first 20 yards, and others said
visualization was the key to a fast time
(I like to think Chris Rainey, one of the
fastest Gators and a legend in park-
ing lot races, pictures a group of his
beloved white girls at the finish line to
make him run faster).

NIT loss ends Gators' season


By PHIL KEGLER

RALEIGH, N.C. After all the UF wom-
en's basketball team had been through, it's
hard to imagine a worse end to the season.
Just a year removed from an awful 9-22
campaign that resulted in Carolyn Peck's fir-
ing, the Gators had made a lot of progress,
just narrowly missing the NCAA Tournament
and securing a first-round bye in the National
Invitation Tournament.
All of that was hard to remember Thursday
night.
The game that ended UF's season fittingly
showed all of its flaws along the way. The
Gators (19-14) started slow, shot poorly and
missed numerous defensive assignments on
their way to a 80-55 rout at the hands of North
Carolina State (20-12) in the WNTT third round.
UF fell to 5-9 away from home this season.


E The UF women's tennis team will
host Arkansas and LSU in its final home
matches of the season, while the wom-
en's golf team will close out its regular
season at the Bryan Park National Col-
legiate. Check the Web site for more.


"For all that we've accomplished and for
how far we've come and all the positives we
have to look back on, it's just not a fitting end to
the season," UF coach Amanda Butler said.
It seems the Gators didn't get out the cob-
webs like they thought they had in a 60-55
squeaker past Florida Gulf Coast on Monday.
"It's just not a fitting end to the
season."
Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach

UF led for only 19 seconds, made only 32.8
percent of its shots and allowed N.C. State to
shoot 46 percent. In addition, the Gators made
only 2 of 11 3-pointers, just three days after a
dismal 1-for-17 performance against Florida
Gulf Coast.
While the game was likely out of reach
